The National Assembly passed the Public Employment Services Bill on 12 November 2013.

Johan Botes, Director in the Employment Practice at Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr explains that this Bill will establish a public “employment services agency”, and will also provide for the regulation and registration of private employment services agencies.

“These agencies are not labour brokers but institutions that will provide job seekers with certain services such as registering job-seekers, matching job-seekers with available work opportunities and facilitating other employment opportunities.

“The Bill will also set up a nationwide database to monitor employment and assist with government’s goal of creating more jobs, decent work and sustainable livelihoods,” he adds.
